    Chess Without The Queen

    Playing Chess without the Queen piece which is the Most powerful piece, absolutely taught me not to relay on things that are seemingly garauteed. I started playing Chess along with my siblings around about 9yrs old, was hard at first but I finally become a good player. I...

    Something to Do With It Being a Man's Game

    I play chess, love it, and although definiely not a master, I am quite well at it. I guess its the general view that "chess is a man's game, man obviously being the more intelligent geder" that had driven me to it in he first place. The love grew in years. I am more of...

    Chess Is Perfect.

    To me, playing chess is the ultimate experience. It is 64 perfect squares, and 32 pieces, that can never change, they can never be altered, the knight will always move in an "L" shape, the bishop will always move diagonally, etc. Whenever I do anything, whether it's watch a movie...

    I feel a little like a hunter

    when I play? Something attractive to me about watching the other person contemplate their options, only to realize their moves are inevitable. The closest I get to observing prey.

    Alexander Alekhine is supposed to have said

    that you should cultivate the most intense and supercilious contempt imaginable for your opponent in chess. I'm not sure such an attitude is conducive to the most effective play, but it does afford an undeniable, if morbid and decadent, form of pleasure when you happen to be...

    It's really fun. You don't have to run

    or whatever, the chances of getting injured are very low. Chess really helps your thinking skills too. You can't win on luck, you need skill. That means having to do some work. Another great thing about chess, is that almost anyone can play it.

    but I enjoyed the game. I learned it when I was a kid, in some school program (GATE) that I don't remember much except that we played chess. One kid was really good at it. We all thought he'd win some tournament we participated in, but he came in 16th. Anyway, I would play it...

    tournaments, but I have always enjoyed a decent game of chess. When I need to relax and unwind, and just can't be bothered to read, and can't get into anything else, or if I'm feeling stressed about anything, a good game of chess relaxes me and calms my mind like nothing else...
